Blue and White said willing to bend on annexation, but not on judge appointments

Blue and White is willing to compromise on West Bank annexation in order to form a government with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud, which has demanded support for the move, sources in Benny Gantz’s party tell the Kan public broadcaster.

But Likud’s demand for veto power on the appointment of judges could see the coalition negotiations blow up without agreement, the sources say.

The issue of West Bank annexation, which Likud favors, was previously reported to be a sticking point in the talks.
